Paramo Womens Alta III Jacket
WOMEN'S ALTA III JACKET
Choose the Alta III Jacket for all-weather protection and moisture control…
The Alta III Jacket uses soft but tough Nikwax Analogy® Waterproof fabric which will keep you dry and comfortable in all conditions. Upper arm vents make it easy for you to control your temperature. The features are carefully thought-out for the all weather walker’s needs.
So expect outstanding weather protection, effective condensation removal and cooling when required, plus suitability for pack-carrying and access to navigation equipment.
How will your Páramo® outperform breathable membrane garments?
The Nikwax Analogy system is designed not only to be extremely breathable, but also directional. That means that it directs liquid water as well as water vapour towards the outside of the garment, protecting your insulation.
Although breathable membranes allow moisture vapour to pass through them, they do nothing to transport liquid water. Therefore, when the production of sweat exceeds moisture vapour transfer, they begin to build up condensation, soaking inner clothing.
So Nikwax Analogy garments work much better for heavy work, and in colder or highly humid conditions, because they actively move all perspiration and condensation outwards.
- Upper arm vents for temperature control on the move without water ingress.
- Pump Liner® reinforcement on shoulders and back for extra protection when load carrying or in heavy rain.
Four pockets for essential equipment:
- Two rucksack-friendly handwarming pockets.
- Large external map sized chest pocket with removable hook to attach compass/ GPS.
- Secure internal pocket.
- Excellent field of vision and protection provided by fully adjustable wired-peak hood, which stows in collar. Works well with goggles, spectacles or tied-back hair.
- Shoulder and arm articulation gives maximum movement without jacket riding up.
- Two-way locking front zip with poppered internal storm flap allows ventilation and access to inner layers.
- Adjustable cuffs easily pushed up or rolled for cooling.
- Waist cord adjustment for precise fit. Concealed cords and locks throughout improve water/ snow shedding.
